The New England Biolabs Podcast: Lessons from Lab and Life
New England Biolabs
The New England Biolabs podcast series, Lessons from Lab and Life, is dedicated to sharing helpful life lessons from successful scientists. From an overview of cutting edge research to finding sources of inspiration, our podcast is for science enthusiasts that like to ponder “what it all means”. Listen as leading researchers draw lessons from where scientific concepts (and misconceptions) have come from, where they are now, and where they are headed in the not-too-distant future. If you’ve got 20 minutes, we’ve got a story that just might interest you. Hosted by Lydia Morrison.
